THE Panthers have announced the signing of young forward Jed Carwright on a three-year deal.
The 20-year-old has agreed to terms with the club after a breakout season with the Titans NYC side in 2016.
The centre-turned-secondrower joins a proud family tradition at Penrith, with his father John a member of the 1991 premiership winning side and his grandfather Merv also an integral part of the clubs history.
Panthers executive GM Phil Gould is excited to welcome the youngster to the foot of the mountains and believes he has what it takes to make it in first-grade.
“Jed has shown tremendous potential coming through age-group football and is now ready to commence the next stage of his development,” he said.
“We believe he is an NRL player of the future.”
Jed will link up with his cousin Bryce who enjoyed a stellar season in 2016, having signed a long-term deal with the club earlier this year.
“We are absolutely delighted to have another Cartwright representing our club,” said Gould.
“It’s only natural that Jed should be playing here with the Panthers.”
